Great!!
One thing I'd add has to do with the heater.
With some heaters you have to wait 15 minutes from unplugging it to taking it out of the water. Just so that it doesn't get damage. Same with when putting the heater back into the tank, you have to wait for 15 minutes or so for it to acclimate.

thanks
i did hear bout that. but thats only the case if the heater stays out a long time or you out it into a tank with different water temps. in the 5min during this water change the temp of the heater hardly changes and the water temp is the same as the old water

i had a heater crack on me once when i stupidly put a warm heater into a cold tank... LOLz...
